Description

Clean, skate-inspired style specifically designed for snowsports and excellent protection for your head: this is the POC Receptor BUG Helmet. The outer hard shell system consists of an external ABS shell on top of a polycarbonate shell that overlap perfectly to give your head ventilation while still completely protecting from sharp objects. The vents can be closed on colder days. Inside is a single-impact in-mold polycarbonate and EPS foam liner that meets safety standards for skiing and snowboarding, and it is lightweight with a low-profile fit. This winter helmet has removable padding and removable earpads so you can wear it with or without your beanie and a comfy sidelock chin strap that adjusts easily for a custom fit. Attach the included "bankers brim” for extra protection from snow and dripping water.

Great Styling
May 01, 2012

The POC Receptor BUG helmet is my first foray into the use of helmets while skiing. I initially looked at some of the more traditional brands, in traditional colors (black, grey, brown) but decided to live life on the edge. I was attracted to the skate styling and color options of the BUG. I ended up with a neon orange helmet which let's the family and friends pick me out on the mountain. The fit is comfortable and after adjusting to the helmet I really don't notice it anymore. For this model, to open the air vents you need to remove a rubber piece from inside the helmet which is plugs the gaps. It is fairly small and fits in a jacket pocket. Even with the vents open, my head still gets pretty damp during the spring skiing.

Pros: Build quality, Great value, Cons: opening of air vents

Awesome helmet!
November 08, 2011

keeps you warm, and protects your head. the best I've had hands down. Very comfortable, lightweight and it's unique design. Excellent comfort + killer looks...everything you can expect from POC. I love POCs design with the ventilation system. its so simple that it just looks awesome. the strap on it is soft, so it doesnt scratch up your chin. just buy this helmet. its not overpriced and is perfect for the job.
